Player's Handbook

Player's Handbook Cover Art, Fire Giant

Welcome to the World of Dungeons & Dragons

The Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game is about storytelling in worlds of swords and sorcery. Like games of make-believe, D&D is driven by imagination. It’s about picturing a crumbling castle in a darkening forest and imagining how a fantasy adventurer might react to the challenges that scene presents.

This book will be your guide to character creation and advance­ment, your reference for spells and equipment, and a constant com­panion at your table for looking up just how many beams of eldritch blast you can shoot this time.

Explore ancient ruins and deadly dungeons. Battle monsters while searching for legendary treasures. Gain experience and power as you trek across uncharted lands with your companions.

The world needs heroes. Will you answer the call?

Arm Yourself for Adventure

Red Dragon, Adventuring Party, D&D

Learn How to Play

Dungeons & Dragons immerses you in a world of stories. The rules give structure to those stories, determining the consequences of an adventurers’ actions. Will your fireball finish off that vicious troll? Will you see the trap door before falling to your doom? Roll the dice and see.

The Player's Handbook is the essential D&D rulebook for both players and Dungeon Masters. Whether you're pulling off a thrilling heist or trying to charm a surly troll, this book will teach you everything you need to know for a lifetime of playing and running D&D games.

Bring Your Character to Life

Halfling Bard

Create a Character

The Player's Handbook will guide you through the process of creating a character. Choose from the most iconic D&D races and classes. Give your adventurer a personality and background. Equip them with armor, weapons, and all the adventuring gear they'll need to succeed. And dive into a game of magic and monsters, brave warriors and spectacular adventures.

As your character's experience and power grows, this book will also be your guide for leveling up, with handy reference charts and a variety of customization options.

Enter a World of Magic

Spell casting Dungeons and Dragons

Fill in Your Spellbook

Learn to resurrect your allies with the touch of your hand or punish enemies with blazing orbs of fire. The Player's Handbook will teach you the rules for spellcasting, the nature of magic in the D&D multiverse, and serve as your personal spellbook—who needs to go to wizard school?

Choose your spells from a huge A–Z directory, with full descriptions of over 350 of D&D's most beloved spells.

Playing Dungeons & Dragons

Adventuring Party Dungeons & Dragons

Become an Adventurer

Adventurers come in all shapes and sizes. Find one that’s fun for you.

An elvish cleric, driven from society for trespassing on tradition. A dwarven paladin, atoning for an ignominious past. The Player’s Handbook provides the skeleton for your characters. Flesh them out however you choose.

Join the Party

D&D brings people together and forges new friendships. Silly moments spawn inside jokes; moving battles leave treasured memories—whether in the heat of battle, embroiled in social intrigue, or solving clever puzzles, your party has your back.

Choose Your Own Path

The woods are growing dark. Behind a mass of ivy, you see the stones of a crumbling castle. What do you do?

In D&D, your options are limitless. Because the Dungeon Master, as narrator of your tale, can improvise in reaction to any choice you make, what happens next is entirely flexible. Do you dare go on?

2.0 out of 5 stars Great game, horrible printing
By R. McKinney on March 12, 2018
While D&D 5e is a very good game, there are some serious issues with the printing/storage/construction of the books. Two friends and I all got this book, and all three of us had pages that were warped. It almost looked water damaged, but I don’t think that is the case.

Looking through other reviews of not just the Player’s Handbook, but also the Dungeon Master’s Guide, and the Monster Manual, apparently this is a common issue with 5e books. Pages are warped, binding is off center, and in the case of the DM guide, a lot of people are getting copies that have the cover attached upside down.

I’d love to give this a higher rating, because I love 5e, but until they can fix whatever is causing all of these books to be garbage quality, I just can’t.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful game, awful book quality. **UPDATE: Replacement product received from Wizards of the Coast!**
By Bruce Stephens on September 6, 2015
I bought this book last September 2014. A bunch of the pages have come free from the binding. I have 2nd edition D&D books that I bought new in the 1990s that have held up to the test of time. I take care of my books so this is frankly unacceptable. Will be contacting Wizards of the Coast to express my extreme displeasure with the quality of this product. It is a real shame since the book has 5 star content, but is made at 1 star quality.

UPDATE 9/30/15:
I thought that I would share my experience with obtaining a replacement book from the manufacturer after my initial review. I contacted Wizards via phone and email to report a defective product. The info to do so may be found here: [...]
After explaining my situation to the customer service rep, they promptly scheduled a pick up via FedEx of my defective book and when it was received, I was sent email notification that a replacement was in route. Fast forward to today, 9/30 and my replacement book has arrived and is in perfect condition. Time will only tell if this one holds up, but for now, I am optimistic. So for those out there that have had issues with the pages coming free of the binding, there is hope! Contact Wizards and explain the situation to them, they have been more than fair in my case. Just a word of advice, be persistent and patient and your replacement book will come.
